From its origin in 19th century Austria, this style of amber lager has become a regional favorite in Mexico and Texas.

12.22.04 Princeton. Dark gold pour, slight ring of foam lingers. Bready aromas, other sweetness, pepper. Lagery flavors that I don’t like and plenty of malts like malted white flour. Seems like a missed opportunity to fill a tap with this during the winter beer season.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2007 Draft at Princeton. Served a tad too cold for my tastes, but so what? I can wait. Pours orange amber. Faint aroma that is bready, grainy, and herbal. Very nice mouthfeel. Flavor of toasted malt, caramel, and biscuit nicely balanced by spicy hops. Clean lagery, toasty, and mild bitter finish. I am not an expert on the style, but this was a mighty tasty Vienna.

Brown color with a slightly sweet and grainy aroma. Flavor is a bit fruity with cereal and medium colored wheat bread throughout. Not bad.

Tap at Philly location. Aroma quite fruity with peaches, berries, lemon yogurt. Flavor starts with these fruits and moves to a grapey, malty, toasty, caramel-y feel. Finish is at first a touch astringent, but then becomes quite sweet, too sweet in my opinion. An interesting effort at a Vienna with all the unusual fruity notes, but at the end of the day, the sweetness pulled it down for me. Looks like this was much better a couple years ago.

Pours a rusty orange with light white head. Has a sweet and floral aroma with some hints of apple. Taste is very good for a lager with a creamy body that finishes with a great malt taste. Although I don’t like lagers, this may be my favorite of them.

Sampled on draught at the New Hope, PA location. Pours to a beautiful, bright, light amber color, with a nice white head, and a moderate amount of carbonation. The nose is balanced, with some nice herbal/grassy hop aroma, paired with aromas of light toast, and nuts. Palate is firm and round on the tongue, with good toasty and dry malt flavor. This beer finishes celan, with some more good toasty malt flavor, then ends with the proper amount of herbal hop bitterness to balance. Well done example of Vienna lager, a style you don’t see too many breweries in the US do. Stylistically an accurate version, with good toast and dry malt character, and less sweet and nutty malt character that you find in a dunkle or marzen.

6.21.05 at Princeton brewpub. I missed this every other time it’s been offered, and happened on it by accident this time around. Nice. A quality vienna, a quality lager.

Man, me and Gene do it again back to back. I thought the taste was lacking something. Maybe not sweet enough. A little bland, a normal lager that was a little harsh.

Poured dark golden with a thin white head. The head was short lasting. Aroma was bready and fruity. A little weak. Solid malty taste. Certainly a descent session beer.

Draft at the Princeton Location. Clear deep golden beer, no head, no lace. Nice example of the style: clean full malt flavor and body - lager style; easy on the hops, great carbonation. Well-made, however, this style just doesn’t have enough character for my taste.
